Poetry by:Preston mcauley

Dad in highschool

My dad in highschool. He looks like me. Standing next to his car. In short shorts. With a perm.

I've heard much about this car. A red Camaro. 68'. He loved that car. His first car.

His friends are there too. Holding baseball bats. My dads favorite sport. Watches it everyday. My dad reminds me of me.

Hope

He hopes one day he can make a difference in the world. That one day he can go to college. That one day he can get a job. And be very important to that job. One day he hopes that he can make a difference in the world.

He hopes that one day he can go to college. That one day he can play baseball for that college. That he can graduate from that college. That he can even make it to college. One day he hopes he can go to college.

He hopes he can survive high school. That he can manage school and sports. That he will have the grades to play the sports. That he can graduate. That he keeps his friends. He hopes he will make it through high school.

Dreams

My sister dreams of being a professional skier. She dreams of living in Tahoe. She dreams of going to schools in the mountains. She dreams of going to the Olympics one day. My sister dreams of being a snow girl.

My brother dreams of being in the MLS. He dreams of going to the World Cup representing his country. He dreams of being mid-fielder. He dreams of getting a scholarship to college. My brother dreams of being a professional soccer player.

I dream of being a professional baseball player. I dream of playing for the Colorado Rockies. I dream of teaching my kids to play. I dream of traveling the country to play my favorite sport. I dream of playing for my country in the Olympics.

Conclusion

I honestly enjoyed this project. It was kind of fun righting poetry for the first time. I definitely would do it again. Its interesting to see what my brain came up with sort of subconsciously. I just sat down and right and whatever popped into mind, I wrote it. Good project though.
